Fire Fighting

Every year uncontrolled fires claim millions in property loss, damage and negatively impact communities with the devastating loss of life. The Occupational Health and Safety Act and Municipal City By-Laws require companies to ensure that their health and safety team members and staff are trained and competent in operating firefighting equipment.

 According to Department of Labour and Employment regulations and the Occupational Health & Safety Act 85 of 1993, every business needs to have a health and safety team training ratio requirement of one fire warden to 50 employees. 

 SEIFSA, in collaboration with its alliance partners, offers the following courses.
